Commissioner Mark Raymond is finishing up 2016 the same way he has spent the last 8 years; serving the people of Uintah County. “One thing I have learned during this time is that we have really good people here in Uintah County and I’ve really enjoyed working with them,” shares Raymond. “The rewards from it have been better than any other employment in the past. There have been challenges but we’ve always been able to work through them.” Raymond was recognized on Thursday during the Uintah Basin Association of Governments meeting. Duchesne County Commissioner and UBAOG Chairman Ron Winterton presented him with a plaque of appreciation for his years of service. The Uintah Conference Center, restoration of airline service, and Seep Ridge Road project are among the accomplishments Commissioner Raymond was involved in during his time in office. An appreciation luncheon is being held in honor of Commissioner Raymond on Monday from noon to 2pm at the Uintah County Commission Office. Brad Horrocks assumes the Commission seat on January 1st.
